    this is my mixmaster which I focused on quite a bit for gathering parts. I thought since a cement mixer is a slighlty less heavy duty vehicle than other construction vehicles that he would be skinnier.

    Scrapper is mocked up as a leg but his robot mode isn't so far done with his legs.

    I have 99% of the parts id like to use for the rest of the team but im building their designs from the ground up for scale purposes, so his his head and hands will be last but its killing me not to want to look for parts or try ideas, its just too early :p 

    let me know what you think!

    Thanks!
    I wont be using any Unicron parts. I have thighs and arms from death star darth vader that im making into sturdy ratchet arms for long haul which will become the thighs. I wanted my Dev to be made out of as much of the team as possible. I wanted his comined parts to be integrated as well as FP did for Bruticus.

    thanks all!, Ill try to get as much of long haul done at the same time as scrapper. Mixmaster needs some arms and some function built but he'll be done soonish.

    hey guys! I have a few new pics updated in the first post, I have finished most of the work on Devastators thighs and right leg before continuing on mixmaster. but since Mix is most of the leg I will post here what is also Long Hauls arms. its a bit skinny right now but this is just the inner structured parts there will be some accurate bits of kibble to bulk up for sure.

    I gotta say I left the height a surprise for myself and I was very pleased. im gonna have to bulk him up and make sure he has great ankles and stiff joints. im also gonna have to hands and arms turn into weapons somehow. i am excite :) 

    p.s. sorry for the tiny pictures my camera was set to like 400x500!

    Ive added 3 more pictures of Mixmasters legs and Devy foot that are almost done. I just recently found a local shop with styrene products and its making things go much more productive :)  also his knee ball joint is permanently installed, I plan to add a funnel and knee cap to help hide it.

    Ive also been day dreaming of LED's...

    hard to say, no one character has equipment and vehicle parts from the same toy.

    but I can list the key equipment from each:
    Mixmasters cement mixer is from Tonkas toughest minis.
    Longhauls grill is from ROTF voyager prime (upside down!) cab is half of RID ultra mag cab. wheels from toughest mini dump truck.
    Hooks crane will be from cybertron mudflap, wheels from toughest minis.
    Scavengers treads are from ROTF devy, bucket arm armada hoist.
    Scrappers bucket and wheels from ROTF Devy, (I would note the use of scattershot as base figure as a foot since it would be hard to substitute)
    Bonecrushers treads are from toughest mini's, bucket/blade from ROTF deluxe rampage.

    it might take me like a year but I want him to be epic. hopefully with lights and a great paint job by someone like yourself. not too much else is coming together right now but ive got a mock up of Longhaul with his arms and key chest pieces.

    I am amazed at the scale you are trying to tackle here. Very impressive and definitely takes some balls to try something new. Looking forward to more updates.

    hey guys! has it really been a year since ive shown any real progress? unfortunately I haven't been in the best spirits the past wile but I have managed to hone the skills here and there and I have been slowly collecting and gathering almost everything I need.

    but for now I have Devestators ankle and mixmaster legs uttrly finsihed except for the windows but thats easy.

    all I can tell you about the rest of the team right now is that longhaul and scrappers plans are brimming to go. I still need wheels for long haul, cab parts for hook, and Im not tottaly sure where im gonna get 7 nice heads. but im not too worried untill i really need them. and so far there isnt one part of all of Devy I haven't had an idea for transformation. nothing will even be stored. EVERYTHING will become somthing for the team and alt modes. even Devestators head and chest sheild. you will be surprised.

    and since ive found articulated hands for every memeber of the team. and considering the scales so far, I can deem these bad boys Masterpiece? Long haul and hook will be between voyager and leader in size but not scale btw.
